Eight races are on the program and after two weekends of rain-affected tracks for The Championships, the cloud cover is still there at Randwick today with rain coming.

The weather isn’t tipped to turn wet however until post-race card late this afternoon, so the current Randwick track rating of a Soft (6) should hold.
